The Method Race Wheels 701 Trail Series is constructed with one-piece cast 356 aluminum construction with T6 heat treatment. This wheel includes Method's patent pending 'Bead Grip' technology, which engages with tire bead seat for increased grip while running lower air pressures, as well as a reinforced inner lip taken from race wheel design. The aggressive safety hump on the inner and outer bead seat further stabilizes tire and prevents de-beading. Method Race Wheels was created to give to the off road racing community a wheel company that makes wheels specifically for their sport. Every wheel is engineered and designed for it's intended use, having been thru numerous Finite Element Analysis and field tests. Method Race Wheels have been developed to minimize weight and increase strength. The result is a wheel that is Lighter. Stronger. Faster.

This is my second set of methods. My first set were double standards on a first gen tacoma. Those went through 5 Minnesota winters with road salt and the finish was perfect when i sold the truck. So after goodluck with those, I wanted methods again. I was tired of the fake beadlock look and machined surfaces so i bought these based on the clean simple design. I had mine powdercoated grey for something different. So far no issues with them. I have yet to air down and really test the ridged bead.
